How To: Watch American Netflix from Other Regions on Your iOS Device

Watch American Netflix from Other Regions on Your iOS Device

Not every country gets the same TV shows and movies on Netflix, and there are definitely differences between the American version of Netflix and other regions, such as Canada (where I live). So, it's not surprise that people are looking to "unlock" that content.

With the popularity of my "How to Watch American Netflix in Canada Using Apple TV" post, I thought it was time to take this Netflix content unlock to the iOS platform.

Please Note:

For this unlock to work, you are required to be connected to a Wi-Fi signal. Also, this may be the deepest you've ever dove into you Wi-Fi settings on your iOS device, but the new Netflix content is well worth the effort.

How to Adjust Your iOS Wi-Fi Settings for New Netflix Content

Make sure your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad is connected to a Wi-Fi signal that has internet access. Navigate to Settings -> Wi-Fi and click the blue disclosure arrow on your Wi-Fi network. Scroll down to "DNS" and remove the numbers that are there.

Enter "" instead.

If the Netflix app is open in your iOS multitasking, close it from the multitasking tray and re-launch the app from your home screen.

These steps will need to be followed for each Wi-Fi network that you watch Netflix on.

These DNS codes do expire at times, so follow me on Twitter @Steves_Studio to stay up to date on Netflix hacking news.
